Default *Official* 2013 First AL & NL Managers Fired Predictions

This is the separate predictions thread I post every year at this time. This year, I am going with Eric Wedge (SEA) in the American League and Ron Roenicke (MIL) in the National League.

I remember a few years ago I hit the nail straight on the head with these.

I'm going with Ned Yost in the AL and Bud Black in the NL.

Gardenhire could get scapegoated in a hurry if the season starts slow for the Twins

I think they love him too much up there to let him go. It would be a mistake if they did.

AL: Ned Yost
NL: Clint Hurdle

Since 1986, the Twins have had only two Managers, Tom Kelly (1986-2001) and Gardy. I don't think they'll fire Gardy, they know they don't have the talent to back up Gardy's talents as a skipper.

You think Robin steps down mid-year before any AL manager gets fired?

Yes. I get the feeling he's biding his time, more than anything else. If things turn, I don't think he'd hesitate.
